Hello and welcome once again to the end of another week here on Earth. An interesting week, with one extra day, snow, the return of Scott Kelly to our home planet after a year in space, the beginning of a new month, cotton candy sunsets, the budding of daylilies, and more. Spring is definitely coming, and one of the yearly signs of spring that I get excited for is the opening of a restaurant in my town called Shrimp Box. They close before the holidays each year, and when Shrimp Box opens, it surely is a sign that warmer weather is on the way. Another sign, not so welcome, is that free parking in the meters and town lots along the Inlet and ocean, which began November 1, ends on March 1. But paying for an hour of parking is better than deal with freezing temperatures (at least to me).
As you check out this week’s roundups of interesting clicks, take a look around your physical world as well. What signs of spring do you see? I’d love to hear! Leave me a comment if you’d like, and take note of the small transitions which will usher in the season of renewal and rebirth.
